So, did you have to do this test yourself or did your nurse/midwife or doctor perform it? I had to do it myself and found it very awkward to do since I have a hard time wiping anyways!

First time i had to do it, and I thought it was awful!! Too pregnant to see or feel and worry that l didnt get everything. Second time my doc did it. So much easier, and not like i had any dignity left!! Lol

I did it myself this time, and I enjoyed not having someone up in my business, if unnecessary. Plus just getting undressed, on the table, off the table and dressed again seemed like more effort.

I did it myself but I had the option of having the midwife do it if I wanted her to. I prefer to do that test myself.

doc did it for me....was literally only 20 seconds. I'd be afraid to do it myself too... Would feel like I didn't do something right.

My OB did mine for this pregnancy as well as with both boys. It was really quick and simple and I too would worry that I somehow did it wrong or something if I did it myself.

My midwife or OB has always done it. It's never been offered to me as me doing it. And that's been with 3 different practices.

I did it myself in the bathroom. I wasn't given the option of the doc. or nurse doing it. Though I would have rather done it myself anyways.

The doctor did it. I didn't even know doing it yourself was an option.
